MIDWEST EXPRESS CLINIC VS. EMERGENCY ROOM
This is what you typically pay if you have met your deductible. In addition to the initial co-pay at the ER, you will usually receive additional bills from the doctors and others. The urgent care bill includes everything.
This is what you typically pay if you have not met your deductible for the year. Note: if you are self-insured, the savings are usually more.
If the wait time is a factor, urgent care visits are often much quicker. Even if an ER advertises “low wait times,” that often does not include the total time required to conclude treatment and be released from a busy ER setting. Nationally, the average time to complete an ER visit is over four hours versus an hour or less for most Midwest Express Clinic locations.
